      About "Life Was A Play (The World A Stage)"

      Lyrics for Toby Keith - "Life Was A Play (The World A Stage)"

      Lookin' back on my younger days
      Life was a play and the world a stage
      Lust, love, and greed were in my heart
      I thought I had to play each part

      I'd skip school and get in a fight
      Had a different girl every Friday night
      But it all came out in the wash
      Dad always said boys will be boys

      [Chorus:]
      Mom and dad backed me through it all
      Picked me up each time I'd fall
      In fact, they called it growing pains
      And said all kids must try such things
      They kept the faith and brought me through
      I still make a mistake or two
      Lookin' back on my younger days
      Life was a play and the world a stage

      I lost my driver's license twice
      For speeding and running red lights
      But like all kids I lived and learned
      Play with fire and you'll get burned

      I bucked the system day and night
      Smoked cigarettes and tried the wine
      Thought breakin' rules was bein' cool
      It's clear to me now I was a fool

      [Chorus]

      Yeah, everything turned out okay
      Life was a play and the world a stage
